Sky TV, one of the largest European satellite television providers, has successfully launched its ‘Sky Go’ application in the iOS App Store.
Originally slated for a July 6 launch, ‘Sky Go’ faced a delay similar to Google+ and several other anticipated apps… with OS X Lion finally here, could Apple’s review team have been busy accepting new Mac apps?
Available for free on the App Store, Sky Go offers streaming Sky television to all iOS devices through both WiFi and 3G, with a maximum of two registered devices at once.
“Get more from Sky Sports with the new Sky Go app, which gives Sky TV customers with Sky Sports 1 & 2 access to the sports they love wherever they are in the UK and Ireland for FREE. So if you’re stuck at work or on the train you needn’t miss the action with all five Sky Sports channels, plus Sky News on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It’s like having your TV in your pocket and taking it wherever you go.”
Only users subscribed to both Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 can take advantage of ‘Sky Go’, according to the official listing. Alternatively, a monthly subscription will be available to those who just want access to sports and movies sometime later this year.
